Washburn Lofts | 700 S 2nd St. | Mpls, 55401 | Mill District


Located in the historic Mill District, these upscale converted lofts are some of Minneapolis' most coveted places to live. Built in the early 20th century, in what was the flour production capital of the world, the building was once home to a radio station, and the Betty Crocker Kitchen. Bought by the city in 1992, the Washburn Crosby Utility Building (as it was then known) was transformed into high-end residential housing and the Mill City Museum. The redevelopment was part of an effort to revitalize the riverfront area.

Ranging from 1,400-to 8,762 square feet, these spacious residences offer modern styling while preserving the charming character of this historic building like the exposed brick and masonry.

Each loft contains 1-3 bedrooms with a den. Homebuyers can expect all the deluxe features that come with such an exclusive building: high-end finishing, modern appliances, and fantastic in-house and neighborhood amenities. Also of note: the building is pet-friendly. Pets are allowed with some restrictions.
